Forum: GratefulDead Subject: What year will be featured in Road Trips 5/1?

The last announcements came in the middle of April and the middle of July, so if the E72 box hasn't distracted them, we might expect a RT 5/1 announcement any day now.

I predicted 1976 or mid-80s last time. Now that they've gotten 1982 out of their system, maybe they'll finally do a June/July 1976 RT.

Your predictions?

hopefully something awesome from 68. I wouldnt mind a best of alpine 89 for it. which basically just removes set 2 from the second night and keeps the rest.

I forgot who mentioned it fist, but I think the '76 Orpheum shows will be picked. Yummy sandwiches.

I remember Cliff suggesting that run for the next comprehensive box set, which I think would be cool but maybe overkill. I agree that an RT picked from the highlights of those shows would be well worth listening to.

Most under-represented year seems to be 1981, but I don't think good SBD copies exist for some reason.

The brief European run could be plucked...personally I'd love a sweet pristine copy of 5/1/81, one of the most underrated shows in existence.

Smart money is on June '76, however. Much to choose from, and very good sound quality to boot.
